very nice and to the point, thank you!
Overall, this was great. I would have liked to see more examples at different angles, but this class facilitated one of those moments where some windows opened in my brain. I had taught myself a lot of the information through observation, but the instructor did a terrific job of showing how the different pieces work together.
Excellent explanation of the anatomy of the eye to explain why the shadows go where they go, etc.
